Talent Analysis

Fogarty has good offensive skills and a big body, which he uses well along the boards and in front of the net. A decent skater, he will need to improve his stride to move to the next level, but he is solid two-way forward, with decent hands.

 

Future

Fogarty is playing for Notre Dame in 2013-14. He projects to be a power forward at the NHL level, however, he is very raw and could be five years away from an NHL debut.
